We had a wonderful stay. The only reason for not giving a full five stars are: 1) The light bulbs in the room are mostly CFLs with a very bright and harsh light - not very romantic, and one can argue not very healthy (blue light) 2) There were no instruction on how to use the hot tub; it was...

My friend and I recently got away for a mid-week road trip to San Luis Obispo. We decided to treat ourselves to a King Suite at Sycamore Mineral Springs to fully experience the "outdoorsy" tranquility of the area. First, I have to say that the suit itself was wonderful. The living area, bedroom, and bathroom were spacious, homey, and well-appointed....

We had a much needed retreat to Sycamore in "Charming" (one of the meadow spa suites). Everything was perfect from check in to departure. Our accommodations were spacious and comfy, our soak in one of the hilltop mineral spa tubs was incredible and our picnic in the beautifully landscaped gardens was memorable. Sycamore is by far our favorite get-away and...

My wife an I have been visiting The Sycamore for more than a decade. We love the grounds, the setting, the laid-back atmosphere, and of course the healing waters. We also love the price, and we know that if the place gussied itself up a bit more it would probably quickly slip out of reach in terms of cost. Having...

I took my boyfriend to Sycamore Springs for his birthday and we had a wonderful time. They were very accommodating and our hot tub was magnificent! We will definitely come back someday, hopefully soon!

The hotel is very clean and beautiful situated. The bed was great. I ordered an in room chocolate strawberries, which was great and a cheese platter with a bottle of wine.
